Ralph Smith B Modle


Recommended Posts

doesn't look like its turboed but has the turbo air cleaner. be interesting to know how many trucks had the bigger air cleaner as an option. I know you could even get it on a small B42 gasser if you wanted. I like the patina on that truck, along with yours Ralph Smith trucks. nice to see a restored one but also nice to see an unmolested original sometimes. chec out the angle iron all along the bottom of the bumper for all the plates.

kinda like Sears oil did in Rome Ny, except they were tryin to run them into the 90's and I think all the guys got sick of driving old junk and driving a 671 with a 10 speed or a 711 and duplex haulin 100,000lbs of oil up the Ny thruway. they had the auction about 5 years ago and it was like the walked out of the garage in 1994 and shut the lights off. course I think Cook brothers got the pick of the liter right after that and got most of the running B models and Brockways.

Thanks for posting Keith.

Glad to see it's still around.

I know I'm prejudice but I'm with mackdaddy would've looked great in our colors with a horseshoe on it!

The last three H-67's we owned did have horseshoes on them.

Truck was owned by Frame's motor freight in West Chester and was basically a parts truck, sitting for a few years with no engine or transmission.

My brother and I had already gotten some parts off of it for our "H" models when our father all of a sudden decided to buy it and put it back together.

I think that was around '73 or '74.

I'm not sure but I believe Frame's (Frame, Morrison, and Ryan) were the original owners.

Think it was a '61

Chassis # H673T-1353
